EA Sports Big, the label known for leading-edge extreme sports titles, speeds into the world of extreme motocross with Freekstyle 2002. If you don't have the guts to hit a 40-foot launch at 70 mph, you don't belong here, 'cause that's the only way to grab the big air you need to pull off 80 insane freestyle tricks. There's no room for fear.
Real-life riders like Mike Metzger, Clifford "The Flyin' Hawaiian" Adpptante, and Jessica Patterson are available to choose from, each with his or her own bike, outfit, and riding style. Ride through nine venues looking for hidden shortcuts, or roam freely over the freestyle tracks. Master the moves to earn the points and speed boosts familiar to extreme sports games. You can also challenge a second player to race via split-screen.

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Windows 7||Intel Core i5-4460||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti||Full speed. No errors/glitches that I can tell. No FPS drops with this config: All default except for Direct3D, V-Sync, 2.5x Native, 4x AA, 16x AF, Skip EFB Access from CPU, Per-Pixel Lighting and Widescreen Hack. I can crank up the Internal Res and AA without an issue, but personally I don't find it necessary. I tested all tracks and didn't find a single problem, aside from Widescreen Hack causing objects to disappear at screen edges, but that's normal. Sometimes minor stuttering can occur at the beginning of a race. OpenGL works fine btw. I just chose Direct3D because ShadowPlay works on it.||Jodeth|
|Windows 7||Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300||AMD Radeon HD 7870||Framerate is stuck at 34-37FPS in menus, races and even loading screens, only the videos run at full speed. Most options don't have any effect on the framerate, but enabling CPU Clock Override and lowering it down to about 54% let's the game run at a constant 60FPS without glitches, but breaks the synch on videos, which is neglectable.||Pit-O-Matic|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7-3930k||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming||Run's on fullspeed when enabling "Skip EFB Access from CPU" under Graphic - Hacks. Blackscreen while using Netplay. Workaround to use Netplay: disable Deterministic Dual Core (Rightclick on Freekstyle - Properties - in "Core"-Section set Deterministic Dual Core to "none". Gets asyncron in Netplay||Plastegiraffe|
